Variety Makes Me a Happy Crafter!

There are many disadvantages to carrying a wide variety of themes in my teddy bear gifts.  My office/craft room is filled to the brim with little bits of this and that, those cute little things that I add on to the teddy bear, or small pieces of fabric that are "just right" for something.  Lots and lots and lots of lace, buttons, bows, hats, shoes, glasses, basketballs, footballs, ribbon, flowers, balloons - and that only covers about half the room!  It would be easier if I just made angels, or just bears with flowers and not balloons,  just made items for Valentine's Day and not every other holiday I can think of.  Just used beige teddy bears, not white ones, not dark chocolate ones, no bunnies, no lambs, no reindeer.  Easier, yes, but not nearly as much fun!!  I guess you could say I am easily bored, I love doing new things with my bears, or finding another animal to use.  And even though that means I have to have a large variety of supplies on hand, it is worth it to me.  A variety of items to offer means I never know what someone will be ordering next!  How boring would it be to get orders for all the same thing, no fun at at all!   Each order is like a nicely wrapped Christmas gift that I haven't a clue about, opening the notifying e-mail is like unwrapping it.  Such a pleasure!

New Fall Products for 2011

This week I have added my final 2 new products for the fall holiday season.  Any of my Harvest and Fall products can be used as decor items.  If you like to decorate your home with pumpkins, gourds, scarecrows, and so on, my teddy bears would fit right in.  Many of them come with pumpkins attached, most are dressed in the rich, beautiful colors of fall.  Or you can send them as a gift to someone to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving, or maybe lift their spirits during a difficult time.

Pumpkin Sweater Bear
This is one of my newest products, Pumpkin Sweater Bear.  She is dressed in bright orange pants with a peach colored sweater with pumpkins on it.  She is holding a nice, bright orange pumpkin.

Thanksgiving Angel Bear
The last product is the Thanksgiving Angel Bear.   Her dress is a  soft tan and brown print, showing a Thanksgiving blessing prayer.  You can see a closeup of the words on my website.

I invite you to stop by and take a look and see if a teddy bear dressed for all would fit in your decor or provide a special gift for someone.

Nothing Beats a Happy Customer!

I just received an e-mail from a happy customer.  To a person who makes and sells her own products, there is nothing better than receiving the news that your handcrafted items was received with joy and satisfaction.  Her e-mail went like this - "Thank-you so very much for the beautiful bears.  I received both of them on Monday.  I am very excited to give my girlfriend her bear on Friday as I know she will love it.  I love all of the special personal touches that you added.  It is perfect.  I loved the fabric on both dresses.  Can you tell I love the work you do?  Thanks again Debbie.  Until the next time I order a bear, take care and thanks again M."  I am looking forward to receiving more orders from this customer in the future.  The picture above is one of the 2 Gardener Bears that she ordered.  Order yours here.

Finally Fall in The Midwest

I saw a tree on our street yesterday that had turned it's beautiful dark red fall color.  Finally! I thought, fall has arrived.  I love the cooler weather and gorgeous colors of God's nature.

The fall colors are so hard for me to pass up in the fabric store, that I quit trying.  I took those beautiful fall colors and turned them into clothes teddy bears, no big surprise.

The Harvest Angel Bear was just a delight to put together, and she would look quite nice as part of your fall decorations as well.

The Scarecrow Bear  is a fun little guy, with hay bale and pumpkins from the farm, he even has a little black bird perched on his hat.

All of my current Harvest and Fall Gifts and Decor can be found by clicking on the underlined words.  I hope to add another one or two in a  few days.
